Shoulder Pain

What causes shoulder pain?

You put stress on your shoulder joint anytime you lift or reach. Between age-related wear-and-tear and acute injuries or trauma, a number of issues could be causing your shoulder pain.

Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Torn cartilage
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Broken collarbone
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Shoulder instability
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Cysts or nerve entrapment
  • Acromioclavicular joint separation (separation of the collar bone from the shoulder blade)

Sometimes, the pain you experience in your shoulder isn’t related to your shoulder joint at all. For instance, if you have a pinched nerve in your spine, the burning and electrical sensations you experience can run through your shoulder and into your arm.

When should I see a doctor for shoulder pain?

Because a number of factors can contribute to your shoulder pain and you could have more than one issue going on at the same time, the team at Orthopedic & Wellness encourage you to schedule an exam if your shoulder pain is:

  • Worsening or not improving after several days
  • Associated with arm or hand weakness
  • Keeping you from work or daily activities
  • Associated with swelling or tenderness

Dr. Ojeyemi and Dr. Roh also want to evaluate you if your shoulder pain is sudden and intense or you notice an obvious deformity. With on-site imaging technology available at Orthopedic & Wellness, the team can often diagnose you on the spot and start treating you quickly.
